Find Sandals Resort Over Water Bungalows…All-encompassing. Until we stayed at Sandals Resorts, we heard “all-encompassing” and cringed.
Back from nearly two weeks island hopping around The Bahamas, we can say that we fully enjoyed our stays at both Sandals Resorts in The Bahamas. There were a couple of things that could be improved, but in general the experience wasn’t at all what we anticipated– in a good way. We ‘d absolutely consider going extensive once again and our Sandals Resorts review shows you why you ought to too:
With Sandals Resorts, it’s clear up-front that there are no constraints on dining, which activities are included which you have your pick of exceptional alcohol. There are additional fees, which is really clear on the Sandals site, for a couple of things such as spa services, off-resort excursions and leasing a cabana. Which’s it.
Sandals even has a strict no tipping policy, so it’s completely unnecessary to have cash on hand.
Which is the nicest Sandals resort? Sandals Resort Over Water Bungalows
After our very first see to Sandals Emerald Bay’s Coffee shop de Paris where we purchased a lattes and presented our space key to the barista just to be told it wasn’t needed, I locked my handbag in the safe. We literally required our essential cards exclusively to gain access to our space. After days of simply showing up for our dinner reservation and simply leaving when we were done, I almost forgot my handbag in the safe when it was time to leave. It was nice.
At both Sandals Resorts, we stayed in Club Sandals level spaces that were embellished similarly in British Colonial design. I like the bathroom at Sandals Emerald Bay more because it had a separate tub and walk-in shower, and double sinks in the vanity. I did discover the restroom lighting a bit dim at Sandals Emerald Bay, but the makeup mirror was lit so that assisted.
The Club Sandals level means extra visitor facilities such being met on arrival by a Sandals concierge, refreshing towels on arrival to the resort, private check-in which included a signature mixed drink or glass of Champagne in the Club Sandals lounge, a trip of the residential or commercial property (which is really very helpful if you’ve not been to that Sandals before) and a dedicated concierge to help with dinner appointments and off-resort activities.
The Club Sandals lounge also offers a variety of parlor game and books you can borrow and Kindles that can be used in the lounge. Free wifi is offered throughout the whole residential or commercial property.
Service at Sandals resorts is typically outstanding by Caribbean requirements, which is true at this Barbados home. You can expect a can-do attitude and ear-to-ear smiles from all the staff you come across. If you remain in one of the top-end suites, you will have access to round-the-clock service from uniformed butlers trained by the Guild of Specialist English Butlers; visitors are given a smart phone pre-set with their number to summon them at any time. Mid-priced Club Level spaces include access to a concierge lounge.
In terms of facilities, there are 3 pool– a vibrant one by the beach with a swim-up bar, the sophisticated one with cabanas, and a 200m-long lagoon pool that snakes under bridges and jets of water. Other facilities include non-motorised watersports, a gym and an attractive day spa. Visitors at Sandals Barbados also have complete access to the centers at the connected Sandals Royal Barbados residential or commercial property, consisting of another medical spa complex, more swimming pools (one on a roof) and an indoor bowling alley.
Staff arrange daytime activities (volley ball on the beach, water polo etc). The evening entertainment is exceptional, and may consist of bands on a piazza at the entryway to the resort, perky singalongs in the piano bar, and a sax gamer wandering the premises playing sensual tunes.
